relations called reforming u.s. drone strike policies finds, quote, far less collateral damage from drones than other weapons platforms. it quotes the bureau of investigative journalism, a british nonprofit, which found in the pakistan drone strikes, 23% of those killed were civilians and in yemen only 8%. approximately 800 civilians killed since 2004 are far too many, but the afghanistan war according to the u.n. left well over 13,000 civilians dead and the iraq war left more than 100,000

than human warfare is untrue. a recent report from the council on foreign relations called reforming u.s. drone strike policies finds, quote, far less collateral damage from drones than other weapons platforms. it quotes the bureau of investigative journalism, a british nonprofit, which found in the pakistan drone strikes, 23% of those killed were civilians and in yemen only 8%. approximately 800 civilians killed since 2004 are far too many, but the afghanistan war according to the u.n. left well over 13,000 civilians dead and the iraq war left more than 100,000 civilians dead. i understand the fears associated with robotic warfare, but it makes more sense to be anti-war than to be anti-drone. the drone program is a huge asset just as it has made huge mistakes. it has significantly degrade the capabilities of al qaeda but if we are intentionally killing people running to victims of strikes or attending their funerals, then those are war crimes. but i sense some in this nation are getting a little soft and forgetful when they defend the civil liberties of al qaeda members who are working
